Ham — Deified by Egyptians as Horus, Part 2

In the first part, we examined evidence that Ham, a son of Noah, was elevated to deity status by the ancient Egyptians. Numerous comparisons between Genesis and linguistics, plus recorded history, make this concept highly probable.

The author draws from additional material in the second article to support his claim. Some are admittedly speculative, and it becomes difficult because of the tremendous amount of time that has elapsed. Egyptian symbolism became modified and additional symbolism had been added for special purposes.

Noah might have been flattered, being the father of a god. Well, there are linguistic connections between Noah and two of Egypt's gods! We know that eight people were on the Ark. Like other cultures around the world, Egypt has a global flood legend with notable similarities to the biblical account — Horus/Ham features in it. Enmity between Horus/Ham and his brothers has a discussion where some folks have speculations that are...truly bizarre. Several other areas are discussed with evidence that appears to support them. See what you think.
One of the most famous and ancient of Egypt’s many deities was Horus, the falcon sun-god. This article explores connections between this deity and Noah’s third son Ham. In part two, I concentrate on motifs 5–12 drawn from Genesis 5–11. Specifically, comparisons between motifs: 5) Ham’s father vs Horus’s father; 6) Ham vs Horus and global Flood judgment; 7) Journey in the biblical ark vs Egyptian bark; 8) Ham vs Horus and sexualized, political, brotherly enmity; 9) Ham vs Horus and their four sons; 10) Ham vs Horus and their journey from the East; 11) Ham vs Horus eponymously naming Egypt; and 12) Ham vs Horus living to great ages. I conclude, through comparisons of Egyptian evidence with these seven biblical motifs, that the pagan Egyptians likely deified Ham as Horus.
